School is out for the week, the weather is warming up, and it's time for a vacation. What does the perfect vacation mean to your family; where do you see yourselves making the most epic memories?

This list was formed by Good Housekeeping before the Coronavirus outbreak, as I am sure this would have changed things a bit. As for our family, we are keeping it much more low key this year - we will be road tripping to Mississippi to visit family and friends. Not all vacations have to be over the top, some of the best ones are spontaneous and within driving distance. Whatever you and your family choose to do this Spring Break, take some time to relax, unwind, and make some fun, family memories!
Sure, we may score you a lower-priced insurance policy, but our real strengths come from the additional value we provide as an independent agent.
More Carrier Choices
As an independent agent, we are not tied to one carrier. We have the flexibility and freedom to look across multiple carriers to find the policy that best fits your needs. We also have experience working with a variety of companies and have insight into their strengths and weakness.
We have the ability to shop around and find our clients the most coverage for the best price year after year.
As an independent agent, we have the ability to review the rates and coverage options from multiple insurance carriers to help place policies that fit our clients' best interests and needs. We are able to take care of all coverage needs at once, from home and auto, to business insurance - we have you covered.
As an unbiased advocate, our loyalty always remains with our clients - not the insurance carrier! We are an expert in the insurance industry and we help our clients find solutions for their specific insurance needs.
Help with Claims
The insurance industry can be very complicated and there is a lot of technical jargon to navigate. We take the stress out of the process by guiding you through the claim process. Again, we are your advocate - we will help answer questions, direct you through the process, and help to make sure that you receive a fair settlement.
We consider ourselves a personal insurance adviser to our clients. We take the time to listen, ask questions, and understand individual concerns. This helps us determine potential risks or exposures that might exist. We help to build a custom insurance portfolio for our clients, giving them the peace of mind to feel confident and secure in knowing they are properly protected.
We don't have a 1-800#, or a dancing gecko, but we DO have an actual person who will greet and assist you immediately. Our clients are our family... We pride ourselves on our exceptional customer service!
We are out and about in the community every day! We love to serve and feel it is a true blessing to be a part of Parker County. We are your neighbor and we are ready to serve you!
To earn the highest safety honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it's no longer good enough for vehicles to protect people inside the vehicle. They must also protect people outside the vehicle.
For the first time, IIHS is requiring automakers to offer pedestrian-detecting automatic emergency braking systems to receive the group's 2020 Top Safety Pick+ or Top Safety Pick honors. Automakers covet the IIHS awards, which they often trumpet in their marketing because many car buyers give extra consideration to those vehicles. IIHS President David Harkey said the organization decided to require the pedestrian crash prevention technology on its top award, Top Safety Pick+, because of the nation's pedestrian safety crisis. "That was really important because of the spike we’ve seen in pedestrian fatalities over the past decade," he said.
IIHS said 23 vehicles won the Top Safety Pick+ for 2020, while another 41 won the Top Safety Pick. Hyundai Motor Group, which includes the Hyundai, Kia and Genesis brands, had the most winners overall with 14.
Notably absent on either list this year were minivans and pickups. Automakers didn't nominate any of them for the awards due to the vehicles' lack of automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, Harkey said.
Other key attributes required to make the two lists include:
A "good" rating on all six crash assessments, including a passenger-side crash test that assesses the safety of passengers when there's a small overlap between cars involved in the collision. This is the first year a "good" rating on this test has been required to make both lists.
"Good" or "acceptable" headlights. If they're standard, that's enough to achieve a Top Safety Pick+. If they're optional, that's enough to achieve a Top Safety Pick. Poor headlight performance has been a significant concern among automotive safety advocates in recent years.
